Looks good, just need to solder some wires on it so you can connect it to the driver. Keep the wires 2.5" or less so you can use this with a flexdrive down the road. Make sure to connect the dummy load to your driver before connecting you power source. When you have your driver set be sure to discharge the cap before connecting it to your diode.

hey everyone, with my diode going zombie on me i purchased a new higher nm one and just thought id fill you all in on my new beta casing that im working on.. itll support the use of 9v bats as well as 3 14500 or 4 AAA's ..

the guy at home depot was no help when i was looking for threads and pipes etc, he told me that he can only help with pipes and nothing else(special projects), so i had to find, cut and modify everything on my own..




link to album.. its protoype 2 btw.
